Glen grew up working on his family farm. He graduated from Falls City High School in 1955. Glen’s life work was as a signal supervisor on the Missouri Pacific Railroad and later the Union Pacific Railroad. He retired in 1988. Not being one who could stay retired he immediately started on his own railroad signal company. He remained involved in the company up until the time he died.
Glen loved to play softball and was a fantastic pitcher for both his work league and church league. He also enjoyed gardening and working in his yard. He always had the best-looking yard on the street. Glen loved all things outdoors including feeding all the birds and squirrels in his yard.
His children and grandchildren were the joys of his life. He attended as many of their events as possible. He loved playing cards with them and was known to aggravate them whenever possible.
Glen made his profession of faith in the early 2000’s and was confident in his salvation. He was an amazing husband, father, and grandfather. His memory will be cherished by his family and friends.
Survivors include his wife of 49 years, Betty Lindsey Nutzman; children, Randy Nutzman and wife Sandra, Rhonda Dietrich and husband Barry, Glenda Schulz and husband Jeff, Melonie Nelson and husband Mark, and Kayla Ryan and husband Thad; grandchildren, Sara, Lauren, Matt, Josh, Gabe, Paige, Joe, Anna, Cole, Elise, Landry, and Charlie; and eight great grandchildren.
